The Dementors Facing Teacher Leaders (and How to Defeat Them)

Read the article at blogs.edweek.org

Confession: I'm a Harry Potter fan. I may have welled up a bit this spring when I walked into Diagon Alley for the first time at Universal Studios. Harry is a young wizardling battling a lot of foes, with one of the scariest (for me!) being the Dementors. For those of you who weren't sucked into Hogwarts and the wizarding world like I was, let me sum up what Dementors are. They are ghoul-like creatures that feed on human happiness. And just like Harry and his friends had to battle the Dementors to survive, I find that many great teacher leaders are fighting the same battle. 

 Yes--we have our own Dementors as teachers. I plan to create a min-series on each, but I wante to start with a big, bad one. The first Dementor is Doubt.
